They say if you stick your head in the toilet bowl for exactly 28.5secs (after someone uses it and before it is flushed) that this would promote some great fighting. Also, make sure you record yourself doing this and post it on youtube. I definitely would promote that video...

We do NOT condone fighting bettas here. Many of us believe it's a cruel sport. Why would you want to take two beautiful fish and make them kill each other?

Excuse me, why would you buy two betta's to fight, they are living creatures like you, what if you were forced to fight someone, and were getting attacked when you do NOT want to, it's animal abuse if you do fight them which you can get in trouble for, they aren't "fun" to fight, it's horrible, and shows how sick you really are, you may think they are "fish" but really, they are a biotic, they live don't they so what gives you the right to fight them?

Please take your betta's back to walmart, or sell them they don't deserve a home like this.

This in my opinion, is absolutely horrible! This is the worst thing you could do for a betta, in fact ANY fish. I consider this a form of cruelty to animals... PLEASE don't support this! They can rip eachother's fins off, and leave the other one half dead! How would you like to be laying on the ground, no legs, no arms, barely alive...

Once again please, don't support this!

Guys, I think this guy just posted this knowing it would tick off a lot of people and is probably laughing with his buddies on the responses he is getting. Can this thread be closed and user banned?

You're doing it all wrong. First you have to get two 10 gallon tanks, two heaters and two filters. Set up both tanks with lots of live plants and hiding places, cycle them both (it takes a month) and THEN put one fish in each tank. Feed them twice a day for the next 4-5 years and enjoy their company. Give them great names like Finley and Oscar and tell all your friends how awesome your fish are. If, after all of this, your fish aren't fighting each other from their separate tanks, you're doing everything right.

What's your problem? Do you have any idea that they're living beings? You must have a cold heart to make 2 creatures fight for themselves. Hardly anyone does fish fighting anymore. You must be pretty old to think that it's like what? The 1940's? You make me laugh. :D I feel sorry for you. Any animal you must have faced was probably suffering. Good Day! :)
